Show Notes

The coronavirus outbreak is already proving to have a major effect on high street retailers. In this episode, Andrew and Zana Busby are joined by retail analyst Bryan Roberts, who was previously Global Insights Director at TCC Global. They discuss how all businesses will be remembered for their actions during this period and could come out stronger, the national realisation of how crucial retail staff are, and whether this could be the end of the high street as we know it. Zana explores the psychological impact of the outbreak and why we must find the silver lining. They discuss the lessons we can take from self-isolation - as well as how this is a time to reset our way of thinking, our habits and our attitudes.
